The mother of a three-year-old girl allegedly molested by her female teacher at Tenderlink School in Enugu, Jennifer Terry, has called on the police to ensure that those behind the crime are brought to book.

Speaking in an interview with our correspondent,  the mother noted that her sole desire was to see justice served on the perpetrator of the crime.

According to her, the perpetrator of the dastardly act damaged the private parts of her child, adding that her daughter still bleeds a month after the incident.

She said, “Yesterday, I was called that my daughter had started bleeding again.  I rushed to go and see her.  I have been in agony ever since the incident happened.  Please, I need your help.  I need justice for my daughter. “

Explaining what transpired, Terry said she noticed her daughter had a running temperature after she came home late on November 14.

Terry said she later noticed her daughter had difficulty urinating.

She said her daughter told her that her teacher scratched her private parts.

Terry said, “It was on November 14. My daughter goes to school and comes back with a school bus and they close by 2 pm.  That particular day, I was expecting her to come back home at the usual time but I did not see her. I started calling the school administrator but she was not picking up the call. I called the driver who told me their car broke down.

“By 6 pm, the bus brought her home.  I noticed her body was very hot.  I asked her if she was okay, and she nodded to say no. I noticed what was wrong when she wanted to pee. She was struggling to do that, so I asked her what happened and she said her teacher scratched her “bum bum”. I placed her on the bed to check her private parts and saw blood. I took her inside my bathroom and bathed her and gave her some drugs.

“The following morning, she could not walk well and blood was coming out of her private parts.

So, I took her to the hospital. At the place I gave birth to her, I was told she was fingered.  I reported the matter at the police station.  They first denied the incident happened in the school but the police ordered that they should bring all the teachers into the school and my daughter pointed to her teacher.”

When contacted, the state Public Relations Officer, Daniel Ndukwe, said arrests had earlier been made on the matter, adding that the investigation was ongoing.

The National Coordinator,  Initiative Against Human Rights Abuse and Torture, Gerald Katchy, urged the Minister of Women Affairs, the National Human Rights Commission, the Nigeria Police Force and Minister of Justice, and all other relevant agencies to ensure justice is served in the matter.

He also faulted the decision of the government to reopen the school while the pupil was yet to be treated.
